to earlier between how science deals with this question and how lawyers deal with this question is that you actually get a fundamental disconnect between the two systems. so you mentioned that lack of emotional control or lack of ability to control your preferences might lead to insanity, but, in fact, in most jurisdictions as you know, that's not true. after hanky was acquitted under the american law institute test because he could not control his behavior, congress in most state jurisdictions changed the law, got rid of the lack of emotional test, the a.l.i. test and now in most jurisdictions, the nontest requires that you demonstrate that you can't distinguish right from wrong. so now we have, and again, the law uses science for the law's own purposes, but what is problematic here is the disconnect. from the criminal side, if you lack emotional control, you go to prison because you can't win under the test because the test doesn't apply. when you walk out of prison and you lack emotional control, you get civilly committed. so what we have is a fundamental disconnect between how

them as they find these discoveries, whether it is the pharmaceutical companies, the other science companies. i just came back from another fantastic conference and mayers, that they allowed me to head up a panel discussion on science, technology, engineering and math. stem, is what we all call it these days. that is the jealousy of all of the other mayers that when they hear about stotterry of mission bay, they are trying to create their own mission bay in their cities and they are wanting to work with all of the universities and the talent because what we have done here, is not only the physical infrastructure, not only creating conditions for businesses to be successful, but we found that we should invest in the very talent that is here and expand on that talent and so it is the noble laurets and the post doctorate students that are here and they are working with people across all of other disciplines, start ups, technology, you hear these great stories and i have seen them myself and we walk in and people no longer using these small microscopes, but they are looking at 3 d tech

a nice thing about science, if you know some science, it will allow you to predict things, see? and they predicted where neptune was, ain't that neat? and later on in 1930, this century, they found other perturbation of uranus and all those other perturbations led to the discovery of what planet, gang, you know? pluto, that's right, pluto. and pluto was predicted before it was discovered and it's awfully hard to find those little specs in the sky and kinda neat. let's be talking about this becoming an exact equation. you see, this reads the force is proportional to the masses and the distance square, but in your textbook, you see, the equation written like this... what's the g? the g relates the force and the masses and the distance square so that this is in newtons and these will be a newtons also and you know how g was found? it wasn't found by newton, it was found much later. it was found, i think, in the early 1800s or early 1700s and i should be knowing that gang, it was found by a fellow by the name of cavendish and he had kind of a neat way of doing it and someone shortly aft

blue gums. from there, hort science gave us the recommendation to remove a number of the trees. it's worth noting that monterey pines were the largest group and two reasons for this. first monterey pines in golden gate park are what hort science refers to as largely overmature in development, which means that they are really old. which renders the tree for susceptible to inspects, the red beetle, et cetera. overall hort science found our urban forest to be relatively healthy an only recommending a very small number of trees to be removed. because nobody likes to see one of our big, beautiful, majestic trees removed, but after expensive study these were deem to be at-risk of failure. so i thought some context would be helpful. >> there was no public comment and with that we'll entertain a motion. >> so moved. >> moved and seconded. all those in favor? >> a. >> so moved. >> we are now on item 10, park maintenance standards report. >> good morning commissioners, general manager ginsburg. my name is steve rockwell a senior administrative analyst in operations and i have the privilege of
